Addiction Treatment Services

Addiction is a chronic condition that can negatively impact your entire life and lead to the development of life-threatening physical and mental health conditions. If you or a loved one struggles with substance abuse, the addiction treatment services offered at Upper Path Recovery in California are here to help you start on the path to sustainable recovery.

How Addiction Impacts the Brain

Addiction has a huge impact on brain function. Drugs and alcohol send a surge of dopamine into the pleasure and reward centers of the brain, flooding them. Over time, substance abuse changes the neural pathways in your brain, which can lead to compulsive behavior and difficulty controlling cravings. Addiction also affects key areas of the brain that are responsible for decision-making, emotional regulation, and reward systems.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, only about 10% of people suffering from an alcohol or drug addiction ever receive the treatment they need. Because substance abuse causes these changes in your brain, it is difficult to break free from addiction without treatment. Fortunately, professional treatment at Upper Path Recovery can help.

At Upper Path Recovery, we understand the complexities of addiction and are dedicated to providing evidence-based treatment approaches tailored to meet your individual needs. Our approach focuses on addressing the underlying causes of addiction, so you can gain control over your life, develop healthier coping strategies, and establish a sense of hope for your future. Our team of experienced addiction counselors and clinicians will work closely with you to create an individualized treatment plan designed to support your long-term recovery goals.

Our Treatment Services

The goal of detox is to allow the body to adjust to functioning without drugs or alcohol. During this period, you may experience physical and emotional symptoms as your body and brain become accustomed to living without addictive substances. While each person’s withdrawal process is unique, common physical and psychological symptoms of withdrawal include:

One of the most important steps of recovery is the detoxification process. Before you can begin treating the psychological aspects of addiction, you must first remove the toxins from your body.

During outpatient detox at Upper Path Recovery, we offer medication-assisted therapy (MAT) and other methods to help reduce cravings and alleviate withdrawal symptoms, such as:

Withdrawal symptoms can be dangerous and can even result in life-threatening complications. When you undergo outpatient detox at Upper Path Recovery, our multidisciplinary team is committed to helping you achieve a safe, successful detox.

The partial hospitalization program (PHP) at Upper Path Recovery offers comprehensive treatment services and medical monitoring during daytime hours. During the evening, clients return to their homes. This level of care provides the foundation needed for a successful recovery.

 During this program, clients learn the skills they need to maintain long-term sobriety while slowly transitioning back into their daily lives. Partial hospitalization addiction treatment services are the right choice for people who want the intensity of residential treatment but who cannot participate in that type of program.

Those best suited for PHP are typically individuals who have already completed a residential treatment program or detox and need additional structure to remain in recovery as well as those at risk of relapsing.

Partial hospitalization at Upper Path Recovery offers access to various counseling services such as individual therapy sessions, including behavioral therapies, group therapy, family therapy sessions, and more.

If you are looking for a level of care that falls between traditional outpatient and residential treatment, the intensive outpatient program (IOP) at Upper Path Recovery may be right for you. Intensive outpatient treatment involves attending treatment sessions several times a week and can be beneficial for those who need to maintain their daily schedule while still receiving the support they need.

The IOP at Upper Path Recovery provides comprehensive substance abuse treatment services in an outpatient setting but with more intensity than a traditional outpatient program. While participating in this level of care, patients have access to addiction therapy services, such as individual therapy, group counseling, family therapy, and support groups.

Through intensive outpatient treatment at Upper Path Recovery, clients gain the skills necessary to maintain long-term sobriety while continuing to fulfill their daily obligations. Our intensive outpatient program is generally the next step following partial hospitalization treatment, as this level of care offers a similar treatment structure with fewer treatment sessions per week.

This form of care is ideal for those who cannot commit to a residential program or need an intermediate level of care before transitioning to traditional outpatient treatment. For people who have jobs or family responsibilities, intensive outpatient treatment can be a good option because of its flexibility.

The outpatient program (OP) is the lowest level of care offered at Upper Path Recovery. Like our other treatment programs, outpatient treatment is comprehensive and includes individual and group counseling, family therapy sessions, medication-assisted treatment, and relapse prevention strategies.

Outpatient treatment is a good option for those who have already completed residential or intensive outpatient programs but want continued support during their recovery process. It is also suitable for individuals who have no underlying medical conditions that would require more intensive care.

This level of care offers the most flexibility, as clients are only required to attend therapy sessions once or twice a week but can still receive comprehensive treatment services. Through outpatient treatment, clients learn the skills needed to remain in recovery while gradually transitioning back into their daily lives.

Upper Path Recovery offers sober living services for those who need a safe and supportive environment during their recovery. Sober living homes provide an intermediate step between residential treatment and returning to one’s home life, allowing clients to practice the skills they have learned in treatment in a real-world setting.

At Upper Path Recovery, we provide a safe and clean living environment where clients can establish a stable routine and focus on their recovery. Our sober living homes are staffed with experienced individuals who provide support and guidance to help clients maintain sobriety.

The goal of our sober living program is to help those in recovery continue to build the skills they need to stay sober while developing positive habits and relationships that will support their long-term sobriety. Our sober living services are available for those who are participating in our treatment programs, as well as those who may need intermediate care before returning to their home life.
